Good point tvlurker. Certainly one of the advantages of flash cutting. In the US, people got used to receiving DTV on UHF only and assumed they didn't need a VHF antenna. Many of the issues will go away with a proper VHF antenna. I am still not convinced that it removes all of the problems though. Even still, at minimum the NLBC should be equivalent to the Grade B contour.
Having repeaters in Brighton, "Prescott" and "Smiths Falls" should help many on the outer edge, though the repeaters will still be in analog.
Link to my TVFool results is in my profile Homepage URL. I suggest others do the same.
